Some Days

The most predictable thing about life is that it's unpredictable. Even on the dark days, God is with us. I hope you enjoy this poem...


Some days are partly cloudy

The sun shines through the mist

While darkness tries to hide its gleam


Some days shine

When beauty shouts with creation’s brilliance

Other days are black as night

But You always pour forth Your radiance

For You are Light

Even when the dark days surface

And Your power cannot be seen with naked eye


Still You reign

Your cycle always brings about what’s good

Lord of Heaven, come illumine my days


I am captured by Your countenance

I see Your form, even through the shadows

Forever You remain the same

Forever mine

Inexhaustible Light

This is Faith

To believe past reason’s gloomy path

To look for light amidst the darkness

To stand upon the promise of abundant life

When all seems lost

This is faith

 

Like a blind man walking past the bright sun

We can miss His blessing

But if we believe, God’s best will unfold

We walk by faith and not by sight

And we shall see His glory

Be Like a Bucket

 

Come my son, my daughter

Be like a bucket

Let the water of My Spirit

And the water of My word

Fill you to overflowing

 

Come to the fountain of my love

Receive deeply of Me

Let my rivers spill over on those around you

Rivers of mercy

Rivers of healing

Rivers of revival

Be like a bucket

Empty of you, full of me

Be like a bucket

Two are Better

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

When I need to move furniture in my house, I often call on a friend for help. Why, because two are better than one. My strength plus his strength makes the task much more doable. When I go through a trial, I am wise if I ask for help. I should first go to the Lord who sees our hearts and offers deliverance. But after going to the Lord, it helps to include our spouse, if we are married, as well as others depending upon the severity of the trial. The prayers of the saints are powerful and confiding in another believer regarding our troubles helps to lift our burdens.

If we fall, our brother or sister can help us up. We are stronger when we work together.  A threefold cord is not easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12). That threefold cord represents two people in covenant with God.

If you are hurting, do not bear your burden alone. Go to the Lord and find a friend who can also help to bear your weight of suffering. The battle is the Lords, but He often uses people to help us during the challenges of life.

The next time you go through a trial remember that two are better than one.

Faith is the Victory

 

…for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4

There is no overcoming victory for the believer without faith on display. We must believe and act in faith to triumph in any endeavor. Faith comes by hearing God’s word. And our faith must be expressed through our words and through our actions. If we believe in our hearts concerning a promise from God’s word, and if we declare with our mouths that that word is true, we will have what we say.

Romans 10:9-10 says, “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

Standing on a promise includes resisting contrary thoughts that our enemy tries to give us when we are acting in faith. David killed Goliath, because he had faith in God. His eyes saw a looming giant but his heart saw his infinitely bigger God. He resisted those thoughts that said he would lose. David confessed his faith by telling the giant that his God would defeat him. Then David ran to the warrior and killed him with a sling and a stone.

Faith is believed in the heart and spoken from the mouth. Faith also must be combined with corresponding actions. This is the only way to achieve and maintain Biblical victory. Thanks be to God who always causes us to triumph in Christ (2 Corinthians 2:14).
